the verdict

In reply to menstrual migraines or epilepsy? so frustrated!, posted by bookgurl99 on July 8, 2003, at 13:15:35

Went to the dr. today; we discussed the whole case history.

He determined that I have classic symptoms of Familial Hemiplegic Migraine, or Basal Artery Migraine. He basically said that prevention _is_ the treatment.

I believe him, and was glad that he understands the mechanism whereby these 'migraines' cause damage.

He suggested depakote for treatment. I asked for effexor, which I'm trying at the fairly low dose of 75 mgs.

Anyone got experiences on depakote? Is it really not so bad? I'm nervous about the liver damage, blood testing stuff.

Thanks so much to everyone, especially aa, for spending so much time on helping me out with this.

I'm open to any suggestions for how to get a handle on this.
